Grading each NC State team this week (January 20th-27th)

#21 Men’s basketball (16-4, 4-3)

Thursday @ #23 Louisville: L 84-77

Saturday vs Clemson: W 69-67

Next game: Tuesday vs #3 UVA

The Pack spilt this week with a Clemson home win and a Louisville loss away. Louisville is a strong team and the Pack was in the game until the very end so that game shouldn’t hurt their AP ranking too bad. Saturday’s game was wild as Braxton Beverly savaged their week with a clutch buzzer beating three. Overall, the Pack wasn’t hurt much by this week’s performance and I’ll give them a…

6.5/10.0


#8 Women’s basketball (20-0, 7-0)

Thursday vs Clemson: W 54-51 OT

Sunday @ Georgia Tech: W 68-0

Next game: Thursday @ Wake Forest

This women’s team is special. As of Sunday, they are the only team in Women’s basketball who hasn’t lost. Clemson put up a fight and it wasn’t a pretty game but you can’t really critique a win that takes you to 19-0 on the season. The Pack won on the road against Georgia Tech Sunday after to go to 20-0. Overall, this squad is rolling and this week I give them a weekly performance of…
